My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Detective Mac and his boyfriend Tony are in a closeted relationship. They are separated for the holidays while Tony visits his family in Florida. Mac, meanwhile, investigates a murder case in which nothing is what it seems – one that will make him realize that the best things in life are not to be taken for granted.
I didn’t read Life Lessons, though this short story made sense just fine without it. It was a very touching holiday story that hit home. I lost a friend the week I read this and it helped put some things into perspective. It was a very bittersweet tale that made me tear up, but in the end left me with warm feelings about love, life and death.
It was good to read a holiday story that was inspirational without being preachy, sweet without being unadulterated fluff. It’s a free read and definitely worth picking up over the holidays.
